Google completed its $US12.5 billion purchase of Motorola last year.
Yesterday, we got our first tangible sign of Motorola’s future under Google with the launch of its newest smartphone, the Moto X. There’s a lot of pressure on Motorola to prove with the Moto X that Google made a wise investment in the pricey acquisition.
It’ll be a few months before we know whether or not the Moto X is a hit or not. But with the saturation in the high-end smartphone market, it’s going to be a major challenge for Motorola to sell enough to make any headway.
In the meantime, it’s worth taking a look at Motorola’s revenues since the Google acquisition was finalised last year. Motorola has a long way to go.
